Project 16 Impressionism
Cubism (Please click here for a project rubric.)
Key Artists: Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro
Influences: English Landscape painters - Joseph Turner and Constable, French painters - Eugene Delacroix, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot and Edouard Manet.
Impressionism began in France in the mid 1800s. The Impressionists were not very popular because they had a different approach to painting. At this time many artists painted in a very traditional way that involved spending hours in a studio, painstakingly creating paintings that were extremely detailed. These paintings were sometimes of people or landscapes or historical events.
The Impressionists often painted out of doors and wanted to show the more immediate effect of light and colour at particular times of the day. Their works are sometimes described as 'captured moments' and are characterized by short quick brushstrokes of colour which, when viewed up close looks quite messy and unreal. If you step back from and Impressionist painting, however, the colours are blended together by our eyes and we are able to see the painter's subject which often showed colourful landscapes, sunlight on water as well as people engaged in outdoor activities and enjoyment.
Paintings by Impressionist artists have become some of the most popular artworks of all time. This is probably due to the fact that their subjects were usually pleasing and uncomplicated.

Key Artists: Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque
Influences: Impressionists; Post Impressionists
Paul CézanneCubism was the first 'abstract' art style which began in the early 1900s when artists such as Georges Braque (French) and Pablo Picasso (Spanish) began painting in such a way that was far removed from traditional art styles. The Cubists tried to create a new way of seeing things in art. Many of their subjects, be they people or landscapes, were represented as combinations of basic geometric shapes - sometimes showing multiple viewpoints of a particular image. This approach was related more to the way we see images in our 'minds-eye' rather than in real life, that is if we close our eyes and try to see an image, perhaps of a friend or a family member, it is often hard to visualise the 'whole' image - we usually see parts or fractured pieces. Cubist pictures are therefore often described as looking like pieces of fractured glass.
The cubists were influenced most by the art of the Post Impressionist painter Paul Cézanne. Picasso described Cézanne as 'the father of us all'. It was Cézanne who began the move to look at the basic shapes in nature.
